The bedrooms are both good sizes, balconies are very nice, the view is amazing. Stephan is a fantastic host, very good at communicating before and during our stay to ensure we had everything we needed. The apartment is great value for the area. We would definitely stay again and would recommend to others. It was perfect for our family trip with young children.
